May All Your Wishes Come True

Hi Crafty Friends,

It's challenge time with my friends over on the CCEE Stampers challenge blog. Being the beginning of a new month it is time to introduce our challenge hostess for the month which is Kelly McKown-Santi.

Fiesta like there's no mañana! Tuesday was Cinco de Mayo, let's continue the celebration with anything fiesta! Get your inspiration from the word fiesta, the colors Red, Green and Yellow, piñatas, sombreros etc. Feel free to simply create a celebration card in lieu of.

For my card today I pulled out my Mama Elephant Piñata Party stamp set which I purchased earlier in the year.... it's the perfect stamp set for this challenge, don't you think!

I created a Slimline Card using Trinity Stamps Slimline Stitched Card Panels and Windows die set and the Slimline Scenic Border die set.

I used Catherine Pooler inks in Shea Butter and Orange Peel for the sky and then Garden Party and Lime Rickey for the grass. I also splattered ink over the background for some extra texture.

To finish off the front of the card I added a sentiment using Taylored Expressions Simple Strips - Birthday stamp and coordinating die set.

For the inside of the card I created a pop-up card using Lawn Fawn's Pop-up - Happy Birthday die set. I also used their Oliver's Stitched ABC's die set to add color to the sentiment.

I added a few more of the images from Mama Elephant's Piñata Party stamp set.

I added two more sentiments on the base of the card which are also from the Taylored Expressions Simple Strips - Birthday stamp/die set.
